How can options help to protect your wealth?

Learn how to Protect your Portfolio

Trading options can be an effective way to protect your portfolio, just like buying an insurance policy to protect your house or car. If you are concerned that the market might fall, but you don’t want to sell your stocks for any reason (for example, because they provide a good dividend income, or you don’t want to crystallise a capital gain), then buying put options either on a broad market index or on some of your specific stock holdings can be prudent way to limit your downside risk.

Important information: Derivative products are considerably higher risk and more complex than more conventional investments, come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage and are not, therefore, suitable for everyone. Our website offers information about trading in derivative products, but not personal advice. If you’re not sure whether trading in derivative products is right for you, you should contact an independent financial adviser.
